I still have my official Panasonic CF-18 Service manual/Drivers CD

When you bought this new you got the above CD with it ? Why I ask is on the touchscreen all the drivers are on the 3 restore disks .

The other CD I have from Panasonic is the one shown in the attached file.
It has individual folders for the 95 page service manual and then each model type of the C-18.
CF18 SVM
CF-18 B mk1
CF-18 D E mk2
CF-18 F G H mk3
CF-18 K L mk4
CF-18 N P mk5
It was so long ago that I don't really remember if it came with it when new or if I ordered it "just in case" right after I bought it.
I remember contacting panasonic about getting an extra battery but it was too spendy for me after just paying for the laptop and I may have
made arrangements for getting the CD then.

Nope that was not from Panasonic. We have been warning members and ebayers for a while about THAT CD. Why pay for it when you can get all the drivers and manuals for free from Panasonic here http://www.panasonic.com/business/toughbook/computer-support-search-downloads.asp
By getting them here you know you are getting the right one's and it's very easy. It took me 6 minutes to download all your drivers (20) into a folder :D

Hi all, so here is the latest. Used a friends Windows generic tablet pc install discs and reloaded xp. Install went fine and ended up with tablet PC 2005 including service pack 2. Went to Panasonic and downloaded all the most updated drivers as suggested from another machine and burned to a CD. When I double click on any of them on the toughpad, I get a dialog box that has a title bar like "CF-18 series software (lan driver)" and a message that says "This machine does NOT support". Any idea whats up? All of the device manager other devices are of course showing ? for audio, network, modem, video controler since they do not have the cf-18 driver. Keypad, touchpad digitizer pen all work fine. The other odd thing is that Internet explorer shows a generic icon in the system tray and will not launch. Any help would be appreciated :o

Just install wirar
Use Winrar and unpack the files
Then put them in C/utilitys , and either run the exe file for each or in device manager direct to the correct file in c/utilitys

This is my instructions for installing on the touchsceen, and should be close
These cf-18;s are fussy and driver install order is very important
Install xp
upgrade to sp-3
Now a list of drivers in order
Wifi driver only from intel And have device manager unknown network device search in the folder you downloaded
Listed on the intel download site as English: 12.2.0.0_X_Drivers.zip Download
Ver:12.2.0.0 Date:1/5/2009 Size:7133 (KB)



OS INF File driver , unextract to c: and install and reboot
Video driver unextract to C: util and install and reboot
Sound driver unextract to C: util and install and reboot
Modem driver unextract to C: util and install and reboot
Now you can do the backwords hotkey stuff...
Hotkey plus driver download extract and go into device manager under the second unknown device direct to the plus driver and reboot
Now the same thing with the hotkey driver as above , note there is only one uknown device in the device manager
then
touchpad driver/touchscreen driver install through device manager upgrade the mouse driver conitunue to reboot after each addition
hotkey settings
hotkey plus manager
hotkey apendex
software key board
display rotation tool

By this time you will have the keys working and you can go into the panasonic program list and modify the rotation and front key settings
Add any other drivers now that I missed

Note upgrading to sp3 might get ie working
